Recall Summary: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2014 FJ Cruiser vehicles equipped with an optional "Trail Teams Ultimate Edition" package, in which the front shock absorbers and springs were replaced at vehicle processing centers.

Recall Summary: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2013 FJ Cruiser passenger vehicles.

Remedy: Toyota is currently developing a remedy. Toyota will mail an interim letter to owners late in April 2013. Remedy notifications to the owners for the repair will begin in late may 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
